Staying at the Old Faithful Inn has long been on my list, but I’ve never been good at planning ahead far enough to get a reservation. I should have thought to take this shot of the space above the lobby with the wider-angle iPhone but didn’t. Hard to take it all in.
The rooms on this side have a view of Old Faithful, which was behind me as I took the photo. Well, they have a view unless it’s blocked by a tree.
I believe there is an overlap of just a few people between this shot and the next, but if I made it a panorama it would be too small. This was taken just before Old Faithful erupted, Saturday, August 18, at 2:34. The sign said the geyser was due at 2:32 so everybody was getting pretty anxious by 2:34. It was another 8 minutes before it really got going.
I estimated more than 1,000 altogether. These photos do not show the whole seating area.
